US military strike kills 60 Shabab militants in Somalia



WASHINGTON – The Pentagon's Africa Command said he had unleashed the deadliest attack on Islamist extremist group Shabab in nearly a year, killing around 60 fighters in central Somalia

The strike took place on Friday Proximity instead of Harardhere, about 300 miles northeast of Mogadishu, Somalia's capital, the military said in a statement. The commanders of the African High Command did not provide any further details, except to say that they had not killed or injured civilians, suggesting that the militants were in a camp or were assembling in an attack.

The strike came after a renewed wave of attacks against the Shabab Somali security forces and their American advisors across the country

On September 21, Shabab fighters attacked American and Somali troops 30 miles northwest of Kismayo. Ten days earlier, militants beat Somalia and American forces in Mubarak, central Somalia, killing a Somali soldier.
